The Los Angeles Lakers captured the league’s first-ever In-Season Tournament championship Saturday in Las Vegas, and will hope to keep those winning vibes going Tuesday when they meet the Dallas Mavericks. Anthony Davis and LeBron James are both on the injury report, so here’s the latest on their statuses for Tuesday’s contest.

Anthony Davis, LeBron James injury updates

Update: Both Davis and James are in for the Lakers.

Davis and James are both listed as questionable for this game. The big man is dealing with a hip/groin issue which he has played through, but appeared to aggravate at one point during Saturday’s win. Davis did finish out that game in dominant fashion, so he should be expected to play. In the event Davis doesn’t suit up, Jaxson Hayes and Christian Wood are likely to fill out the interior rotation for the Lakers.

James has played through his calf injury since he popped up on the injury report, so his availability is in even less doubt. The King did take a hard fall in Saturday’s win but kept playing with no restrictions so he should suit up.
